Tara Minton - ‘Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid’ Album Launch
Thursday 19th November 2020
Hampstead Jazz Club is an Official Venue Partner of London Jazz Festival Week November 2020
Sought-after by Björk, Tom Walker, Disney and more, Australian-born, London-based singer and jazz harpist Tara Minton has written and recorded an extraordinary record inspired by the mythology of mermaids.
With artwork by painter and musician Blanche Ellis, ‘Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid’ will be released on 6th November as a limited-edition CD and vinyl, with only 500 copies of the former and 250 copies of the latter available.
Featuring some of the UK’s most talented jazz musicians – Phil Merriman, Ed Babar, Dave Ingamells and Tommaso Starace -, and produced by John Merriman, ‘Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid’ is a remarkable collection that reveals Tara as a brave and fascinating songwriter, musician and singer.
A jazz album with depth and a sense of expansiveness, the harp acts as a powerful undertow within the ensemble, capturing the listener and sweeping them away into previously unexplored waters of sound.
